Old school elegance, updated modern ammenities, impeccable service and primo location in the heart of Nob Hill. The views from the tower are absolutely some of the very best in the entire city, rooms are spacious, luxurious and very clean and well maintained. Front desk staff was kind, helpful and prompt.

An excellent hotel on all levels. The Fairmont upgraded us upon arrival, without asking. The amenities were first rate and the service was prompt and professional. Wi-Fi is not free, but other than that, I have absolutely no complaints.

Other than the excellent view from my room(18th floor), The Fairmont fulfilled none of my expectations of a grand hotel. My wife and I were guests for a week.

A very good location and hotel to stay in SF. They make you feel at home and use the concierge services for hot spots for eating out, events, and others. Very pleased in all staff and hotel amenities.

Stay here if you can afford it and you will not be sorry. On top of Nob hill and convenient to everything. If you want to experience San Francisco stay here and eat at the Vegan restaurant down the hill (Millennium) and walk back and you will lose weight, Everything you want to remember a hotel fondly is here.

The property itself is beautiful and the renovation only added to this, but the staff is absolutely amazing. The beds were extremely comfortable, the rooms were immaculate and the space of the room was fantastic, especially for a family.

We stopped at the Fairmont for three nights on our way to Hawaii. There was a great deal on so we decided to have a little bit of luxury ans weren't disappointed.
